On the whole dishwashers are simple devices.
A controller tells a pump what to do - push water around the machine or push water into the drain.
Miele machines have a very good record for lasting over 20 years.
If you are a "handy person" you could try checking the hose to the drain is clear - blocked hose won't drain.
Have you checked the filter system inside the machine - at the bottom of the d/washer under the bottom spinning arm? If this is blocked - no drain - so clean it well.
If little checks like this are all OK well its up to you - repairs could cost £60 - £80 a new Miele would be nearer £400.
Try to get it fixed its kinder to the planet - and your pocket.
Good Luck.

Does anyone know how much it costs to fix a samsung dishwasher that shows e3 code? Is it a big fault or simple fix?


you may have a problem on the draining system. Previous cycle not fully drained and holding off the new cycle.
remove the drain line from its discharge position and hook up a 5 gal container for it to drain in ( maintaining the necessary height for the anti syphon loop )
Select programme 7 which should allow the drain pump to kick in straight away
You should be able to hear the pump running at the bottom of the machine and observe a discharge from the hose.
The chances are the pump needs removing and cleaning.
or - the drain line where the machine discharges is backing up and not allowing a free discharge.

So frustrated - LG dishwasher washes 5 minutes then shows OE code - have cleaned drains, sump pump, out let pipes. Still doing it. ONly 9 months old..... My old dishwasher worked for 10 years.......


Hi there Diane OE on your display relates to the water draining system (water is not pumped away). the diashwasher is not seeing the water drain away. Dishwashers start by draining before they take on fresh water. Start your dishwasher and listen for a pumping noise from the waste pump if you dont hear any noise it may be the pump is blocked or faulty. please advise if this helps kind regards gary.

Badger 1/2 hp in sink erator (garbage disposal) steady stream leaks from the bottom near the reset button. It appears to be coming from a drain outlet (a small hole, dia. approx size of smallest screw ),...


You might be able to buy time filling hole with epoxy or silicone caulk and let dry for 2 days.
10-year old garbage disposal had a good run.
Disposal will need to be replaced at some point.

When I worked apartment maintenance, we replaced disposal with same brand disposal.
That way we didn't have to change out sink basket.
How to: Disconnect p-trap and tailpiece going into disposal.
Rotate connector disk clockwise that holds disposal to sink basket.
Before installing new disposal.
Attach electric wire to new disposal.
Attach dishwasher tube to new disposal. Knock out plug inside dishwasher opening.
Push new disposal up into place, and attach to old sink basket with new connector disk.
Use new connector washer.
Re-assemble tubular pipe.

If this is your home, you want new sink basket that comes with new disposal because it looks shiny and new.
Buy a tub of plumbers putty also.
Remove old sink basket and clean opening.
Put finger-size roll of plumbers putty around sink opening, and then push new strainer basket into plumbers putty.
Tighten basket from below, wipe away excess putty around sink opening.
Install new disposal as described above.

Tips for tubular pipes:
When taking apart tubular pipes, start at p-trap and take apart as few pieces as needed to do job.
On image below, loosen both upper and lower nuts, trap falls loose, and then work on disposal.
Any tubular drain pipe that gets moved while working under sink needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled.
Metal pipes have rubber washer >> always use new rubber washers.
Plastic pipes have plastic washers > plastic washers can be cleaned and re-used.
Plastic washers have flat side that goes toward nut, tapered side away from nut.

When reassembling tubular pipe, we use rectorseal on washers and joints.
Apply good amount on washer just before pushing washer in place and attaching nut.
Rectorseal will ensure tubular drain pipes won't leak.

My diswasher does not drain.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

There is a lot of crud in the bottom of my dishwasher. It is 4 years old. the dishes are not clean.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Check the water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible.

This would have happened as the dishwasher was overloaded with more than prescribed number of dishes. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. As the dishwasher is not draining properly, this issue is related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

30 hotpoint dishwasher


#1. If you have to put downward pressure on the float in order to fill, then float switch is not OK.
#2. It would seem as though your pump impeller is missing some, or all vanes. (Not pumping water out).

#3. It will become even more difficult to find parts as time goes on.
#4. 30 years...It has done it's job. It has paid for the trip, It's time to move on, What else can I say.
